Description
Photograph was edited for publication purposes
There are no rules of procedure to stop a mugger in times of attack. Here a woman shows several methods of stopping her assailant in his tracks. She uses her knee as a weapon, and drives it into the man's groin in hopes of disabling him long enough to get away. Photograph dated January 28, 1965.; See image #00113426 for additional photo in this series.
